HB 1927-the new 2021 Texas Gunfighter Bill! Lol

I’ve got a Texas License To Carry. It was no giveaway or Just Show Up and YOU PASS. You actually had to prove a Proficiency with the Handgun by actual Firing and Range Testing. You also had to Learn hours of the Law concerning Carrying a Handgun. And you actually had to PASS a Knowledge Proficiency Test of the Laws of Carrying a Handgun. It cost Money and Time. You had to go get your fingerprints taken to endure you were Lawfully legal to Carry a Handgun with no Criminal Activities by America’s Fingerprint Database. In other words. Were you a Crook of any sort and your fingerprints are On Record for Criminal Activity? And my License to Carry also had VETERAN on it. I was more Proud of that than the License Itself.

Well, doesn’t matter whether you are Happy or Upset now. Almost seems a JOKE to all who did the Above.

But was it worth it? Absolutely! I learned more than I ever could by being taught about the LAW. LAW KNOWLEDGE is some of the Most Ignorance Texans own because Texans don’t know the Law. And 99% will never READ a thing about it.

What do I think? Don’t matter what I think. But I see a lot more Road Rage incidents taking place with Stupid Folks flashing their Firearms or even shooting a Warning Shot like they know the Law.

In no time, we are gonna be laughing about some stupid things. And we’ll see more Innocent People getting shot by accident. But the Gun that fires a Bullet is responsible for all bullets it fires. Well. No, not the Gun, but the person who pulled the trigger will be responsible.

But the Lawyers are gonna be busy and tons of stupid folks are gonna be losing their homes.

Get Ready. Gonna be interesting reading. And sure I see good events taking place. But will Ignorance Rule the Day? Time will tell.

And the Stolen Guns will shoot thru the roof as people will be leaving them everywhere as well. Car burglaries will shoot thru the roof. As they will be looking for handguns. Yes, they will. But people showing off their handguns will be a Mess too. Especially when they do it in Public like a rabbit thumping his foot.

And there will be people doing such stupid things as I know. I’ve read too many already and they were legally carrying a Handgun with a License to Carry. But no training is gonna be what?

But most Texans do want a gun with them in their Car or Truck or Boat or RV or Motel Room. Their Apartment too. Their Homes. Yes. We do.
